Anyone try making this one yet? I may do it in about a month.

I don't quite have enough hops for their version but how about this for the hopping schedule.(also I though about throwing in a small flavour addition)

2-3 oz Chinook 90min
.5 each of Simcoe and Amarillo 20min
1 each of Simcoe and Amarillo 5min
.5 each of Simcoe and Amarillo dryhop

Okay,

Going to brew this up next week. The grain bill is pretty much set, but could use advice on the hop schedule. I am going to add some flavour additions. As well the original post I think said 120IBU's of chinook. My version right now has a bit less (90) but the simcoe and amirillo additions bring it up to about 130IBUS. Also, What would a good mash temp. be?

Here it is: (sorry about the odd measurements, this is converted from metric!)

5.5 gallons 90 minute boil

15.4 lbs 2-row
.88lbs Caramel 60
.88lbs Carafa special III

2.5 oz Chinook (90)
.5 oz each Amarillo and Simcoe (20)
.5 oz each Amarillo and Simcoe (10)
1 oz each Amarillo and Simcoe (5)
1 oz each Amarillo and Simcoe (dry hop)

Yeast cake of Wyeast 1056

Any input/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!

Funny, I just found this today.
I've NEVER had any of the Stone brews, but they all sound awesome. I actually printed this one out so I could try a clone.

I found this yesterday. It looked so good that I started throwing together a recipe. Thanks for the link. It helps clear up some questions. Anyone brew from this recipe?

One question I have is about only having a 5 minute late hop addition. The Stone website says, Flavor hops added at end of boil or whirlpool: 50/50 blend of Simcoe and Amarillo. They are not specific about what the end means, but for a 90 minute boil, I was thinking of making flavor / aroma additions at 30-10-0-DH.

Another thing is hop substitutions. If I use what I have on hand Id substitute Northern Brewer for the Chinook and Cascade for the Amarillo. Or should I pony up for the right ones?

I am going to try the right hops. I spent a lot having them shipped to canada so this will be an expensive beer!!!! I better be good!! Check my hop schedule near the top of the page and let me know what you think.

Have you done this yet? I might give it a shot this weekend, but with hop the hop substitutions I mentioned earlier. Your schedule looks pretty close to what I planned.

Quote:
OG target is 20.5P (1.082 SG) Terminal Gravity target is 4P (1.016 SG)
This makes me think the mash should be around 152-154 to get the right amount of fermentables. What were you thinking?

I did brew this last week!! Can't comment on the results obviously, but this is what I did in the end for the hops.

2.5 oz Chinook (90) I aimed for about 85 IBS from this addition
.5 oz each Amarillo and Simcoe (20)
.5 oz each Amarillo and Simcoe (10)
1 oz each Amarillo and Simcoe (5)
1 oz each Amarillo and Simcoe (dry hop)

Overall, IBU's should end up at 122 according to Beersmith

I actually scaled my recipe to hit about 1.080 and ended up right on. I was aiming to mash around 152 but actually undershot it a bit 150-151. Oh well, I just hope it won't end up thin tasting.


Can't wait to taste this!! Let me know how yours turns out!

5 gal batch

Malts:
9 lbs Light DME
0.5 lbs Crystal 60L
0.5 lbs Carafa Special

Hops:
1 oz Chinook @ 60 min
0.75 Amarillo & 0.75 Simcoe @ 10 min

I'm just wondering how much Amarillo and Simcoe would qualify as "LOTS!" for dry hopping? Also, I think I'll have a hard time finding Simcoe, can anyone recommend a substitute? Magnum perhaps?

would you want to use light or would pale be more appropriate. i am a total rookie so I could be wrong as ever.
